This 1973 Plymouth Barracuda now named HellFish has exceeded all of the customer's lofty expectations. “I wanted a car that scares me, and this car definitely meets that requirement".
The customer found a clean ’73 Cuda and enlisted The Roadster Shop to transform his dream into reality. Since the Cuda’s sheet-metal was already in great shape, The Roadster Shop went to work nipping and tucking various sections of the body for a tidier appearance. They kept all the original panels, but cut and fit the bumpers tighter to the body, shaved all the emblems and trim, and built custom front and rear lower valance panels, fitted the grille and taillights off of a ’70 Cuda, and built a custom lip spoiler into the decklid and quarter-panels. Mounting the turbos in the back of the car allowed for a clean engine compartment while keeping out the heat.
